What's Around the Rio Grande Inn?

The Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn is the most convenient resting spot in all of Albuquerque. The BW Rio Grande Inn is bordered by I-40 to the North, the Downtown District to the East, Route 66 to the South, and the Rio Grande River to the West. The Inn resides in the Historic Old Town District, which is home to over one hundred-fifty shops, restaurants, and attractions.

Route 66

Historic neon signs still glow on old Route 66 through Albuquerque, which is now Central Avenue. Alongside the vintage signs, you'll see new versions put up by businesses that are continuing the aesthetic traditions of old Route 66, adorning their shops with bright, buzzing neon. The famous Route 66 continues to guide visitors through Albuquerque, from the volcanoes on the city's far west side past the Rio Grande Botanic Garden and the Albuquerque Aquarium, through historic Old Town and the Downtown business district, and continuing eastward through the University of New Mexico and the trendy Nob Hill area. The Rio Grande Inn is .6 miles or a ten minute walk from Historic Route 66.

University of New Mexico

The Rio Grande Inn is 4.6 miles or a nine minute drive from the University of New Mexicio. Founded in 1889 as New Mexico’s flagship institution, the University of New Mexico now occupies nearly 800 acres along old Route 66 in the heart of Albuquerque. From the magnificent mesas to the west, past the banks of the historic Rio Grande to the Sandia Mountains to the east, Albuquerque is a blend of culture and cuisine, styles and stories, people, pursuits and panoramas.

Albuquerque Zoo

The Rio Grande Inn is 2.0 miles or an eight minute drive from the Albuquerque Zoo. The hotel's complimentary shuttle will transport guests to and from the Albuquerque Zoo.
